All Right Got me a Project...... $300

Has some wiring issues........ :confused:

Got the old girl home and pulled the moslested wiring harness out.

one step foward.

Let the stripping begin!!!!

Of course i hurt my self.... But it is a small price.

got the useless mounting points gone.

Now for the Chop. figuring how long the tail needs to be....




Tires off waiting for new rubber.

and trimed the front fender to just protect the motor.

And this is how she sits right now.

Got Bars, mirriors, grips, and "new" old wiring harness on the way! Rebuilt the carbs, and changed the oil. So i guess im gonna mock up the rear seat and tail end this weekend and get to hammering some metal.....

no fairings for this one. i just finished mocking up the tail and seat out of heavy card stock. im thinking a weathered look would fit nicely! I liked the look of the stock tail so i made something simmilar so i could hide the battery and starter relay and rectifier inside. Im also mounting the licence plate on the back and the brake light on the swing arm.

Very Good tires; won't last too long but a good all round tire nonetheless.
You might consider Avons Roadriders AM-26's too. even less money than the Dunlops

Since you picked a bike that has a kick starter, why not lose the electric start? It'll allow you to use a smaller battery and lose the extra wiring and parts.

Just a thought.

I'm glad to see someone doing a GS. Keep it up.:party-smiley:

I dont mind the starter wiring, i plan on hiding the starter button under the gas tank somewhere(incase i get lazy). I havent decided if i want to keep turn signals yet or not.

Swankster : whats the life on those tires? they're only $30~ cheaper.

hmmm...... I think due to the slight price diff i might as well pony up and get the dunlops even if they only last me an oil change......
